Lagerfeld the Chanel Shows

A chance to relive the Lagerfeld-era and the shows

On February 19, 2019, Karl Lagerfeld died, leaving behind 60 years of visionary fashion. The designer will forever be linked to Chanel, to which he brought modernity since taking the reins of the house in 1983. For Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2020, the Royal Monceau art gallery is showing a series of photographs shot by Simon Procter, captured backstage at Chanel shows during Lagerfeld’s era. This is truly a rare opportunity to dive into the world of the designer. The exhibition also has a beautiful book, published by Rizzoli – the ideal way to take home a piece of the breathtaking beauty.

The Gallery is open daily from 11AM to 7PM during weekdays and Saturdays, and from 12 to 6PM on Sundays.
